Our ability to build custom software designed to replace Excel spreadsheets and Access databases is something that we pride ourselves on. Whether for non-profits or private companies, we firmly believe that a custom web application can manage business processes and functions in a way that spreadsheets and databases simply cannot.
We recently tackled another one of these projects for local firm Genesis Engineering Group. While they acquired new custom software, we acquired Devin, a new member of Team Awesome!
Did you know that almost one in five businesses have suffered financial losses due to errors in their spreadsheets? That's right, almost one in five but companies continue to rely on spreadsheets because they are free.
Spreadsheets seem free anyway; most computers come with some variation of them already installed, they're easy to download, view, copy, and edit, and they don't cost the company a dime. Why shouldn't your business use them? The answer is simple, because they aren't actually free.
Inverse-Square recently launched a new charity initiative. Each year, Team Awesome will cast a vote to pick a local cause to dedicate their time and resources to.
Paws & Think is the charity chosen for 2016. Founded in 2001, they are "a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the community by using the power of the human-animal bond."
For almost twenty years The National Center for College Costs (NCCC) has been helping students and parents prepare for college with various programs and services.
Their goal is to "reach large volumes of students and parents on certain key college preparatory issues that otherwise might prevent students from attending and/or successfully transitioning to post secondary education; and to create a culture of 'college for all' by raising the expectations and readiness of students, their parents and others who support them."
A common pitfall in custom software development is putting more focus on the 'end' of the project rather than on the application itself. In reality the end of an application build is only the beginning of the application's use; there are very few processes or applications that don't require support once they become essential to the business. Because of that, it's important to have a plan in place for support and enhancements before your developer even begins to build your custom web application.
In this article, we'll take a look at what your custom software maintenance needs might encompass, and we will also explain why enhancements might already be required for a new application. And finally, we will lay out a few options that help cover both of these categories.
As Inverse-Square's Senior Application Architect, Jesse's job is to look at solutions from a micro and a macro perspective, "people come to us with ideas and problems and visions and our goal is to realize the best option that we can".
Jesse's career at Inverse-Square began after a lunch date with his old work colleague, Bob. Bob filled Jesse in on all of the amazing things that Team Awesome were working on, and the supportive and jovial atmosphere at the office. It didn't take long for Jesse to decide that Inverse-Square was where he belonged.
Contracting a software development company to build a custom web application to support your business processes may seem daunting, but with the extensive knowledge and experience of the custom software developers at Inverse-Square, we can make sure that the engagement is as smooth and stress free as possible.
If you're considering a custom software solution for your business, these six steps will explain what the process of working with our developers would be like.
Do you know what ERP is? Don't worry if you don't, the Easter Bunny didn't either.
ERP is short for Enterprise Resource Planning; business management software comprised of integrated applications. With ERP, you can collect, manage, and interpret data across your entire business. It's a handy application and the Easter Bunny needed it!
Focused on patient care, research, and education, the Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (IHTC) is "committed to providing the highest quality comprehensive healthcare services to patients with bleeding and clotting disorders, and to their families."
An organization with a focus this specialized, needs specialized software to aid them in their day to day.
One early Autumn weekend in 2011, Bob Baird and some friends headed out to Morgan-Monroe State Forest for a much deserved break. Earlier that week, Bob had successfully finished a challenging, months-long project at the small custom software firm he had been working for, and a weekend enjoying nature's quiet, and his friend's company seemed like the perfect way to clear his head. Bob also knew that with his wife being seven months pregnant with their first child, an opportunity to get away with the boys wouldn't come along again for sometime.
